Brighter futures for homeless children
Children in Bolivia are desperate for help.
As one of the poorest nations in Latin America, the country is plagued by long-term unemployment and endemic poverty. Children are regularly abandoned by parents who are unable to feed them. Many face violence and abuse at home. As a result, they escape to the streets—where today, close to 4,000 boys and girls are struggling to survive.
Salesian missionaries serve hundreds of children in and around Santa Cruz alone; and yet, for every little boy or girl we help, thousands more await their chance … in Bolivia, and in so many other impoverished places in the world.
